I'm trying to plug a 2nd monitor into my 5970 and for whatever reason I can't get the 2nd DVI port to work at all. It shows I have 2 monitors plugged in in the desktops and displays part of catalyst control center, but nothing I do works to turn on the 2nd monitor. I've tried to create a group, I've tried to turn it on in windows by "extend desktop to this display"
Any ideas on that? Do I have to plug it into the mini display port for a dual monitor setup to work?
I have read from someone else before, who had a problem, due to a different type of DVI cable on his monitor. I think it was DVI-D (or that's the correct type, I do not remember the specific). Are your two monitors the same type?
yep tried both.. also I do remember one of the first times I plugged in the monitor it didn't work in that slot and I just moved the slots and I guess retardedly figured it was just not set up as the primary in the catalyst and paid no more attention to it.
